The Help for Young Actors Super Course

EVERYTHING you need to help your young actor build a safe, successful career.

I know money is tight for many of us right now. Which is why I bundled my four courses into one for an over 50% savings.

The best part? There’s no risk.

If you think there’s a chance The Help for Young Actors Super Course can help you… give it a try!

Take a full 60 days to use the material, and if you don’t feel completely satisfied, email ANY TIME during the 60 days after your purchase, and I’ll happily give you a full refund. No hard feelings.

What is it worth to cut through months or even years of frustration because you have a much better grasp of how things work in the entertainment industry?

It costs an average family about $5,000/month to live in Los Angeles. WASTING EVEN TWO MONTHS because you are confused about how to most effectively pursue a course of action COULD COST YOU AT LEAST $10k.

AND your child’s finite window of opportunity.

What is it worth to know you are supporting your child’s career with genuine guidance?

I wish this education had been available when I came to LA with my daughter Dove ten years ago, but I am very pleased to be able to offer up my hard-won experience and learning to you in this online course. Hollywood is challenging enough even when you know what you’re doing! And even though no one can promise that your kid will be a star, you CAN shorten the learning curve and give your kid a serious edge on the competition. Right from your own home.

The other thing I wish is that we’d gotten started earlier!

Dove was 14 when we arrived in LA, and most of her peers had a big head start on us. What are you waiting for? Begin your own Hollywood Journey today.  

I can’t wait to have you join us. See you in the videos! 🙂
